Does anyone notice the LTE speed and how much responsive 6.1 update? It appears to be faster for me. Just curious if anyone notice any difference. Thanks!

NEW FEATURE NOT DISCUSSED BEFORE: In the music app, while connected to the same network, you can play your Mac iTunes music and turn on the screen saver as well as using airplay on the Apple TV. Pretty friggin cool.

Heard there's a jailbreak untethered for 6.1 and 6.0.1,6.0.2. So fare to say upgrade to 6.1.anyone? Just double checking.

I can't see anything different with the new IOS 6.1 on my iPod touch 4th gen at all.

There's one more new thing! Siri now works with Spanish, and probably other languages too (previously, spanish could be selected as a language in Siri preferences but it was only available for Dictation).

Why apple updated carrier settings to allow LTE for companies like Telcel (Mexico) just for iPad 4gen and iPad mini and not for iPhone 5 or iPad 3gen??????

Why even waste your time to change to6.1. Then to jail break. If you iphone is working ok on 5.1.1 and is already JB. let it be
NoGoodNick - January 28, 2013 at 10:47pm
Why would you update to 6.1 garbage. If you are on 5.1.1. ...stay on it and screw the update which doesn't offer anything new that you will notice.
NoGoodNick - January 28, 2013 at 10:44pm
6.1 full of crap It doesn't give anything of substance
odedo1 - January 28, 2013 at 10:34pm
no way I'm upgrading my 4S and my iPad 3 LTE from 5.1.1 to 6.1 till i know for sure that Apple didn't block the jailbreak and the jailbreak is out and working, the only problem is that because installuos is gone nobody wrote a new AppSync 6 so i don't know if its worth it for me to upgrade at all, i might just stay on 5.1.1 because 6.1 gives me nothing i need, and everything on Cydia works on ios 5 but not much for ios 6.

Ya ill update so I can FINALLY jailbreak my iphone5 cause I miss Notifications I forgot the name from Cydia. But now all is need is the Jailbreak.
